GOC suspends Glasgow based optometrist

The General Optical Council (GOC), the UK regulator for optometrists and dispensing opticians, has decided to suspend David Little, an optometrist based in Glasgow, from its register for twelve months.

A GOC Fitness to Practise Committee found his fitness to practise impaired by reason of misconduct. This is in relation to amending patient records which did not reflect an accurate account of the patient’s appointment.

Mr Little has until 6 May 2021 to appeal his suspension.
